Nuttzo® Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Squares

When I was young I could never decide which was better:  chocolate chip, peanut butter, or oatmeal cookie dough.  When I grew up I still couldn’t decide if one was truly better than the other so after contemplating this dilemma for the better part of five decades, I had this breakthrough moment where I thought why not combine all three to make the ultimate cookie dough snack treat.

Chocolate Pecan Bars

Chocolate Pecan Bars are rich, moist, crunchy dark chocolate nutty bars that will remind you of a chocolate pecan pie (without the corn syrup) although my daughter says these gooey treats taste like cookie/candy bars. In fact, these bars were born of a “disastrous” mistake made when I added too many pecans to a chocolate pecan pie recipe with the idea that more is better. Read more »

BuckWhat Noshes

There are some foods you can nosh to your heart’s content……

Buckwheat is actually a gluten-free seed and not a wheat or grass as its name suggests.  Popular in Russia and China, buckwheat is starting to gain popularity among the health conscious in the United States due to its nutritional content. High in protein, buckwheat is rich in complex carbohydrates, iron, selenium, zinc, dietary fiber, and four B-vitamins. Read more »

Whole Grain Date Bars

Dates are often thought of as nature’s candy with the Medjool variety considered one of the finest there is. Large, sweet, and creamy, the Medjool is the perfect fruit to eat as is or in a recipe for Whole Grain Date Bars:  a crunchy applesauce-sweetened cinnamon oat crust covered in cooked dates and topped with more crunchy oat crumble. There is no added sugar in this recipe because the dates add enough sweetness to the bars. With their soft and chewy texture between two layers of crunchy oat crumble, the dates are the star of the show and – as with most stars – they shine brightest in their simplicity. Read more »

Nuttyness Marzipan Bars

Marzipan is often known as almond paste in the United States and is generally reserved for holidays or specialty cakes but only because Americans haven’t really discovered the wonders of this nutty, chewy treat. Traditional marzipan is made with ground almonds blended with sugar or honey but modern marzipan can also be made with pistachios or hazelnuts.

Chewy and sweet, marzipan is the perfect ingredient for a candy bar because the combination of dark chocolate covered marzipan is a contrast in flavors (nuts and rich creamy chocolate) and textures (hard and chewy). Read more »

Antidote Dark Chocolate Bars

Seeing red? Feeling blue?  There’s an Antidote for that.

There are hundreds, if not thousands, of incredible chocolate bars on the market but Antidote Dark Chocolate Bars are in a league of their own. Created by Red Thalhammer who was born, raised, and educated in Austria before moving to New York City, Antidote Dark Chocolate Bars differ from other bean-to-bar chocolate makers in that she uses half raw and half roasted cacao to make bars that are comparatively low in sugar (0-8 grams per 1.1 ounce serving) but off the charts in flavor.
